“The original was given an ‘A’ certificate because of its action sequences, gruesome murders and heavy sensual content. In the sequel, the makers tried to keep all this low,” says a source close to the film’s production house.
The ‘A’ certificate could mean that the film might lose out on reaching out to a wider audience.
When contacted, Tigmanshu remained unavailable to comment on it but producer Rahul Mittra says, “Now if the censor board decides to issue an ‘A’ certificate, what can we do?”
The makers have retained most of the actors from the original. Irrfan and Soha Ali Khan are the new entrants in this sequel, which will hit theatres on March 8.
